The Best Fake Wreathes for $30

December 2, 2014

I know, I know. Fake = bad.

Being a fake friend is bad. Being a fake cook is bad. And, most certainly, being a fake plant is bad.

But, a sturdy fake wreath can be really good. Why? Because it can save you MONEY.

Last year I bought two fake boxwood wreathes from Target and hung them here in our dear old house. Aren’t they little cuties. 

Even though they were fabulous last year, I didn’t give them my SST stamp of approval until now. Why? Because I just pulled them out of the attic and they look brand spankin’ NEW, that’s why. Holla at ya wreath.

 My biggest beef with fake plants is that their lifespan is just sad. A few weeks into its life a fake plant begins to look faded, collect dust bunnies, and droop a little.

But these wreathes are such showstoppers. I adore them. And the best part? They are only $30, and great quality. For ultimate safe-keeping, I kept both of the boxes that the wreathes came in and once Christmas was over (sad) I put them back in their boxes and then in a plastic garbage bag to make sure no dust bunnies took solace in their leaves. I know, I invented storing things in plastic garbage bags.

Pretty good, eh?

Wilson’s and my Savannah love nest is getting in the Christmas spirit slowly but surely. We have the cutest squatty Christmas tree — aptly named Chunky Charlie — but we have not put lights on him yet. We hung our stockings — with great care, in hopes that Santa would bring cocktails to our lair — but have not yet adorned the mantle with some lush garland. More to come on this. 

Happy Tuesday!

      I definitely think you should. Can you believe how good they look after a year and a move across two states?
